Subject: nice Fire
I actually like this Fire better than the version used on Shakedown Street.
Reviewer: JamminJerome - - May 23, 2008
Subject: It's a studio session, what do you expect?
It is what it is. However, this If I Had the World to Give is BEAUTIFUL. I wish they had done this one more.

Subject: What could have been . .
I think there would have been many more collaborations with Lowell had he not passed shortly after this album. He really could have impacted the band's sound in the 80's, you never know. He fits in nicely on these recordings. I don't think the Saint is from the same studio sessions, unless Brent was already in the fold at this time.

Subject: no small Feat
This is nice. Not a fan of later GD albums. But Lowell makes this one a keeper on GL 1 and Miracle.
For a better album, listen to:

Subject: Interesting bits
Shakedown Street was the beginning of the end as far as Dead studio recordings. I remember the disappointment of most Deadheads when this came out.

I agree with the first reviewer below that the best cut here is number 8, I Need a Miracle, which is better than what wound up on the released album.

Serengetti is actually France.

The Grateful Dead and Little Feat are my two favorite bands ever, and to hear this makes my heart skip a beat. My computers already full of memory on shows from both bands, but i managed to squeeze this one in too. Awesome

I always wondered why Lowell's presence was not stronger on the finished album. This is more what I expected to hear from a collaboration of GD & Lowell George. An invaluable peek into the recording process & the influence of a great talent on a great band. Sound quality average. The Archive is the greatest thing I have run into on The internet. Grateful I am!

Subject: Grateful Lowell
That's Lowell singing alone on Good Lovin' take 1. He also does some backing vocals on GL take 2 and I Need a Miracle. What's odd is what I downloaded from this page has France as track 2 -- no Serengeti. Go figure... anyway, it's real interesting for Little Feat & Dead fans like me. You can really hear Lowell in the drums and percussion. Some of these tracks don't sound much different from the released versions on Shakedown Street. They're like the basic tracks, minus most of the overdubs. Fire on the Mountain has the same rhythm mix with different guitar work from Jerry. Saint of Circumstance is undeveloped -- you can see why they waited to release it until Go to Heaven. The highlight is I Need a Miracle -- quite different and with a great but too brief vocal duel with Bobby and Lowell. Too bad Lowell didn't get a miracle. The Feat could've done a terrific cover with him.
